Re: WWW AO R4: Federer vs. Raonic?

Raonic still has to look up the meaning of return of serve. Fed should win this despite Milos' huge serve.

Re: WWW AO R4: Federer vs. Raonic?

H2H is a bit misleading at 3-0 for Federer, really could be 0-3, some matchup this was last year.

I believe in my man though and he's due a win over Federer. Raonic in 4.

Re: WWW AO R4: Federer vs. Raonic?

This will be the funniest match of the AO, Federer shanking every 1st serve return

He should win but who knows if the stars align for Miloserve Botnic in his quest for Acedom

Game over. Forever.

Raonic easily in 3 or max 4 sets if he serves well.

Federer always seems to lose 5 set matches though so if he goes to 5 it favours the Canadian Slavic dude. I imagine it'll go something like 7-5, 3-6, 6-4, 7-6.

Raonic was always better than Atomic and more of a threat. Their Madrid match was insanely close on blue clay and Fed could have really lost that. But then he went on to win the title.

It's bizarre but Fed never wins a title like Wimbledon without a really close call. Benneateau at Wimbledon, Raonic at Madrid...

Re: WWW AO R4: Federer vs. Raonic?

All their previous match were really close.So for Raonic to have a chance of winning is simply winning the TB`s.Certainly u feel the longer the match goes,Federer will get more into the rallies,where he will have the upper hand.Winning first set will certainly be key for Raonic to have a chance of an upset.
A 4 set win for Federer with Raonic winning first set is realistic
